This case involves an elderly female patient who had implants placed in her jaw. When the implants were placed, a gap was found in the manufactured gum and the dentist put acrylic in to fill the gap. During the first fitting, the posts got stuck and the dentist used a significant amount of force to release the implants. In the months following the implant placement, the patient found it difficult and painful to remove the dentures. About 7 months after the implants were placed, they fell out while the patient was eating. She bit into a sandwich and the implant came out, puncturing her upper lip. The dentist put in a temporary acrylic fix which deteriorated in weeks. The patient was subsequently limited to a soft food diet.
